Broken Ledge looks like a pizza with one slice slightly broken away from the rest. Discovered fairly recently in 2010, this deep reef has mini ravines, crevices and canyons that are a delight to explore.
Giant moray eels gawk from between the rocky outcrops while banded sea kraits glide gracefully like ribbons of black and white into their sanctuaries.
The site is not only home to the most popular reef creatures like the lion fish, shoals of snappers, Moorish idols, Napoleon Wrasse and giant groupers but also a variety of turtles. Apart from the resident marine life, the ledge is also frequented by big fish like white-tip reef sharks, Manta rays, Marble rays, dog-tooth and yellow fin tunas. This site is often compared to Johnny’s Gorge but offers comparably shallower depths and sheltered conditions that cater to divers of all levels.
